Ming Shu Fragrance Reviews

Reminds me of a 1996 Oriflame eau de toilette named Sea which I, as a kid, regarded as the best fragrance in the world. Ming Shu is tender, long lasting in spite of its lightness, a good summer fragrance that, with its discrete expensive aquatic-like boldness, is interesting enough to stand out in the crowd of limited edition tutti frutti scents. It also is, as most good perfumes produced by Yves Rocher, sadly discontinued. I read that Elizabeth Taylor's Diamonds and Saphires resembles Ming Shu and I'm interested in purchasing it, even though it lacks the Sea Water note I am such a sucker for.

My mom had it too, I kept the bottles to decorate my bathroom:) The perfume is really one of a kind, not just aquatic but floral and more precisely lotus-aquatic, very peaceful, like a little pond deep in the jungle, undisturbed by man.

This scent immediately reminds me of Acqua di Gioia, minus the citrus. It is fresh, watery and unisex. If you enjoy the natural water, grassy,fresh fragrances you will love Ming Shu.
It's a clean, fresh, aquatic scent, suitable for both men and women, works well as an everyday spritz, almost musky yet oceanic.

I agree with the previous reviewer - I find aquatic fragrances kinda nasty on my skin and this is definitely very wet, very aquatic, but I rather think of a sea-weed-filled beach when I smell this, or a Chinese pond filled with water lilies and fish. Please, don't misunderstand me, this isn't fishy-smelling, it just smells like there's something... almost living as an ingredient in there. UPDATE: It might be the musk that creates this association. One of my relatives loved it though, so I gave it away to her - she in general loves extremely fresh, extremely wet and icy smells.

There's something nasty about this one, don't like it at all - maybe I just don't take to the "aquatics" (just started experimenting out of my perfume comfort zone), but there is a chemical smell to this one, not reminiscent of the seaside, more like a crowded public pool. Not exactly chloriney but reminiscent of. Don't think I'd wear this one again, even at the beach in the height of summer. Nasty.

At first smell is really fresh and nice, but after 2 min it becomes very rough, very male and strong. To bad!

While i did love the original Ming shu, from the 90´s and used it a lot at that time i completly dislike this version of the Ming Shu, the modern EDT. Tried it yesterday in a local YR shop and it was disgusting! Like a water lilly has been cut and left in a water for a long time and them starting to get rotten and bad. Then there i a "wet" cedar note as well. Overall it is over the top fresh and too watery as well- Totally a cheapest smell you could find in a drugstore. Yack! To be honest, it instantly reminded me of a L´eau d´Issey and Escada Acte2, which i dislike with all my heart and nose. Such a dissapointment indeed. How little change can ruin a fragrance so much.

Please do not remove this comment, since others might find it useful. Not every review should be positive, so people like me wanted to make a blind buy might find it very informative. Thanks.

This will always be my favourite perfume, loved it for many years now. It's discreet and is appealing to everyone. Fresh yet flowery scent. It's pure bliss!

Ming Shu is a lovely floral-aquatic scent that I used to wear in winter.
The perfume smells mainly like water lilies, lotus, water and somehow cool.
Ming Shu lasted more than 5 hours on my skin which surprised me in a good way.
I recommend this fragrance for winter wear as it will surround you with a soft, cool and floral-aquatic scent cloud.

The original Ming Shu - what an unforgettable invigorating fragrance!! I had initially a bottle of 15 ml, which didn't last very long of course. Then I was only able to find the milder Ming Shu Fleur Rare in a larger bottle, but I didn't like it as much as the original icy-aquatic Ming Shu. What a pity Yves Rocher stopped producing this wonderful scent! This used to be so dazzling..

Very aquatic and fresh. So it's not my type of scent. Maybe it's good for someone after sports or so.

The real Ming Shu was fresh, powdery. The original is harder to find, now they have a newer version. It is a good fragrance and I loved giving it to people as gifts as it is not an overwhelming scent.

The bottle pictured above is the lighter version of the Ming Shu Fleur de L'Aube (Flower of the Dawn). The original Ming Shu was Fleur Rare, and came in perfume, eau de parfum and eau de toilette (all now sadly gone). Fleur de L'Aube only comes in the EDP and EDT...

I never got the EDT of this, as I have the MS Fleur Rare EDT and prefer it. The EDP of the Fleur de L'Aube is nicer than this, IMHO, as well.

This perfume (and EDT) are inspired by the flowers on a chinese river (nymphaea stellata) that open at dawn and give off their lovely scent most strongly before the day's heat gets too intense. It is a very fresh, mostly aquatic floral with a crisp, sweet opening and a lovely sheer heart and finishes more woody than musky. My sister prefers this strength to the others I have...but to each their own!

Fresh without being soapy/aquatic. It's (a tad) peachy and floral. A really pleasant fragrance. This is one of the few fresh fragrances I actually like. I haven't come across anyone who doesn't like it. Ming Shu seems to please everyone. I tend to wear this at family gatherings since I don't think it will give someone a headache or make someone neauseous. lol. I wish the lasting power could've been better though. It only lasts 3-4 hours on my skin.

Ming Shu smells a little powdery, a little aquatic but mainly like water lily and lotus.
A really well done perfume.
Great for winter!

I agree with many who said this is more floral than aquatic. Indeed, the frag's lawenber blue color might make it "seem" aquatic but it is not. Lovely bottle, light scent, starts off a bit too flowery for me but fades away to a very feminine, soft, satin-like scent that lingers a while, although the lasting power is only around 2-3 hours.

Aquatic's not the right way to describe it. It is really floral, but I think that the blue colour makes them think of water :)

For the woman longing to surround herself in tranquility, a fragrance inspired by a precious water blossom floating along Chinese River Mosuo. THe cool, transparent notes f the Ming Shu flower infuse your aura with harmony and serenity.

Watery light aquatic floral w/a hint of peach. Perfect for every day. I'm hard to please, but I really like this. Don't know about the longevity tho..
EDIT-I did like it for a min..but not enought 'zing' for me. Like I said, the longevity is terrible.
